In 1979 Melvyn Bateman set about starting an agricultural engineering company to rival the best in the business, in the 35 years that have followed LM Bateman & Co. Ltd. has become a leading light in the agricultural world not only in the UK but throughout Europe. Bateman deploys its own fleet of vehicles to deliver our premium products UK wide, we now manufacture a complete range of animal-handling and feeding equipment using prime quality tubular and RHS steel, galvanised to ISO1461. We supply these products all over the UK and throughout mainland Europe. We are continuously developing new products to keep Bateman at the very forefront of agricultural engineering.
Our Chairman Melvyn is very much still involved along with two of his sons, Thomas and Edward, on the board of directors and several family members in the business. Bateman remains very much a privately owned, family run operation.
When Melvyn started the company the objective was clear and still remains the same today, provide the agricultural market with a premium product and supply them at a competitive price. Bateman products are manufactured on site, at our headquarters in Cheddleton, Staffordshire. The site itself is in continuous development with the recent acquisition of 2 new sizeable yards to cater for Bateman’s expansion with a brand new distribution centre also in development. We also have a product storage depot in Cullompton, North Devon which is also manned by dedicated Bateman staff.
We aim to achieve the very highest level of customer service, we have a team of dedicated territory sales managers who are contactable at all times via mobile phone or email. We also have an internal customer services and sales team who are fully trained to handle any enquiry.
Bateman is a modern and progressive business we will never stop developing the way we do things and investment in the company is ongoing, this combined with family values makes LM Bateman & Co. Ltd. a true market leader in the Agricultural sector.
